Getting to know your candidates

By Christie Chisholm

We here at the Alibi are a privileged bunch when it comes to politics.

At least two people injured themselves kicking the rock-hard balls which were chained to lampposts and trees alongside spray-painted messages reading, “Can you kick it?” Police said they had identified a 26-year-old and a 29-year-old and had found a workshop in their apartment where the soccer balls were slashed open and filled with concrete.
